TAP Portugal to launch a new route to Bucharest

TAP Portugal (Lisbon) has announced new service between Lisbon and Bucharest will start on June 30 with three flights per week to the Romanian capital.

Flights will depart from Lisbon on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 11:10 pm (2310) arriving in Bucharest at 5:10 am (0510). The Bucharest-Lisbon return flights will depart on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays at 6:00 am (0600) arriving in Lisbon at 8:25 am (0825). The new route will operate with Airbus A319s.

The announcement of the new flights to Bucharest follows TAP’s earlier announcements that it will be launching two other new European routes in 2012, to Berlin (June 5) and Turin (June 3).

With these three new routes already launched this year, TAP will be flying to a total of 51 European destinations in 22 countries, thereby continuing to consolidate its European network, a sector which flew 5.79 million passengers in 2011, an increase of 9.3 percent over the previous year.

The flag carrier will suspend the Lisbon-Athens route for the winter season starting on October 28.
